- Science Fiction Grand Master Robert Silverberg births a new religion from a social experiment gone wrong in ‘The Pope of the Chimps’.
- A father’s grief leads to a son’s identity crisis in ‘Snapshots’, by Leo X Robertson; and Susan Pieters shows us it’s all about perspective in ‘Spin Doctor’.

- Kathryn Yelinek’s protagonist must work outside her element to save the man she loves in ‘The Nyx’s Wife’, and a young paralegal meets all sorts of interesting commuters in ‘Late Night Fun Facts on the No. 65’ by JTF King.
- The 2018 Raven Short Story Contest winner, Cheryl Wollner, crafts a story of friendship that is impervious to fire with ‘Girls Who Dance in the Flames’.
